According to a letter issued by a CHED OIC Director, former ADMU player Jobe Nkemakolam, previously the subject of yet another UAAP Men’s Basketball controversy, was eligible for College and therefore cleared to play during the time he was on their roster.
To recall, a certain Atty. Levito Baligod filed a complaint with the UAAP Board, claiming that Nkemakolam was not qualified to enter College and therefore ineligible. He presented evidence ie. a CHED statement issued Sept. 3, 2009 stating that Nkemakolam Ã¢â‚¬Å“has not met the academic requirements to graduate from high school, hence, he is not qualified for admission to college.Ã¢â‚¬Â The document was signed by a Lilian B. Enriquez, Officer-in-Charge, Director III. Reports via inboundpass and uaapsports.com.
Also contested by Baligod was Nkemakolam’s graduating from Reedley International School, providing evidence stating the school has no record of his attendance for Grade 12, the equivalent of 4th Year High School.
